, that -- >> i reject the notion that it is government's role to help the middle class or any class. joe biden came in years ago with middle class tax force and by his own admission terribly ineffective and in my opinion offensive. but tracey said taxes are a force and did is a violation of people's rights and that's why paul ryan said growth stagnation and wealth destruction. they will up for everyone despite what the president and his cronies have you believe. >> and british lady, gen, tell mow middle class in england buried in taxes like mr. biden said we are buried here and paul ryan. >> they are buried in the moment. they are dealing with austerit yedebt reduction and so forth. biden and ryan are agreeing. obama hasn't got the middle class out of the hole that happened under george bush's watch and policies of george bush. but look at the review. broadly obama has sought policies to decrease taxes on the middle class. 16 taxings decreased for maul business and 3600 for the class that are done underneath this president. >> it sounds smart because of the accent. wayne, two examples. taxes t

in state government debts as well. now my final number: $50,000 is the median household income. so, we owe $12,000 more than we make. that means as a nation what we owe now exceeds what we have. that also means even if you confiscate all that we make every penny of its you would not come close to covering what we spend, any of it. that is the issue the guys should be hammering tomorrow night, how vulnerable we are. the guy would lays it out would not just be reframing the debate but setting off a firestorm. but one that need not concern him or us. as the fine of the mind in both political parties have told me, and, yes, there are still quite a few, to quote a certain vice presidential candidate, we can do this. listen to two guys on my fox business network show, which if you don't get you should demand, last night, retired democratic senator sam nunn and former republican senator bob bennett appears jointly on fox business network. each offering relatively modest proposals to fix this mess. listen closely. >> we particularly have to discuss, frankly, with the american people, that the enti
as compared to romney's own perscriptions that call for smaller less expensive government. for the president what he's going to try to do is say look, maybe things aren't so great but it is partly the fault of george w. bush and the republicans who were in office prior to the democrats taking control in 2009, so we need time to fix it, and by the way, the president will also say that he wants to increase taxes on people like mitt romney to help pay down some of that debt. >> reporter: we just put of that graphic there showing the $16 trillion of debt and there are so many digits it almost doesn't fit on the tv screen across the screen there, as you can see. but haven't americans in some way become number to astronomical numbers? how serious is this in. >> they have become number. is it the new normal this massive spilling of red ink but it raises three problems which i don't think the nation has got even to grips with yet. number one our economy is smaller than our debt. we look like europe, we know what happened there. number two we are spending $9 billion every week just paying interest on
and this is what a roaring romney sounded like. >> trickle down government is where the president will raise taxes on small business which kills jobs. i want to keep taxes down on small business so we can create jobs. this is about good jobs for the american people. >>neil: he swings, slams, scores, way too early to say if the swing states swinging back to the challenger but after last night, the critics say they probably stopped swinging away. larry said the race ain't over but he also is saying for the challenger it is an uphill fight. what do you make of last night and how this changes the dynamics? >> everyone, obviously, just about everyone, from right to left, says that romney won the debate. i gave you a full "a" and i give the president a "c" minus. there was a giant difference between their performance. everyone who was fair was impressed with how romney handled that from going to end. obama was stunned by how well romney was performing. he seemed almost to take a step back and tune out. >>neil: do you think he came in to it is on the clock, the president, to your point he didn't expect t
administration is telling contractors if they get sued for not sending out layoff notices the government will pick up the tack. lockheed martin will hold off telling workers, but two kron man sent a letter saying quote, should you rely on that guidance and fail to comply with the warren acted requirement, will you be setting up your company for serious legal and financial reprosper cushions. graham sounds pretty upset. >> in 2007, senator obama wanted to extend the notice requirement to 90 days rather than 60 to make sure the employees were fairly treated. now president obama who is faced with warren act problem because the notices go out before the election, the unilaterally setting aside a congressional statute. >> reporter: they insist their guidelines is legal and consistent with all federal contracting laws. what they advise contractors does not make new obligations for agencies or taxpayers. >> gregg: thanks very much. the radical cleric along with four other terror suspects making their first u.s. court appearance after arriving on a flight from london. they spent years unsuccessf

governing. >> big maher -- bill moore. said it was like michael jackson on tranquilizers. >> you know what andrew called it a disaster. >> i think he will do quite well in the next two debates so if he did quite fine off the cuff but he doesn't get the hard questions. >> four minutes more speaking time during than 90 minutes than mitt romney did and he made far fewer points or punches. >> you are asking this part of the press to comment. i got to tell you it was not the best. i also have to say that part of it, i think, he didn't -- we always say you invite the person in your living room for the next four years. in the baltimore sun also said that mitt romney won the debate because he talked a little bit about his personal journey. the president didn't talk about that at all. >> jon: next on news watch, was the president's poor showing the fault of the debate's moderator. >> middle next have been buried. they have been crushed. >> the media gave mitt romney high marks for debate performance. how does the media rate the job of the moderator? that is next. for the spender who needs a little

you go. >> in my opinion, the government is not effective in bringing down the cost of almost anything. >> so funny. >> those were his poll numbers. >> that was a good one. i liked that. so now i had one as well. which i thought was kind of cute when he was talking about his boys and having the five sons and i thought this was kind of a cute moment and he brought in his family, which i thought worked very well for him. >> look, i got five boys. i'm used to people saying something that's not always true, but just keep on repeating it and ultimately hoping i'll believe it. but that is not the case. all right? i will not reduce the taxes paid by high income americans. >> eric, that i thought was a really telling moment. he had a nice way to kind of artfully put it together and get the point. >> any parent out there knows what he was talk being. he probably gained a lot of that undecided parental vote that goes yeah, i know. i got the same thing. he really showed himself on a lot of levels. he showed himself on policy, he showed himself on likeability. his likeability -- everyone saying ab
will continue to provide health care. the social contract has changed now that the government is involved. some math, our average cost for employee last year was roughly $10,000 and that's going up to roughly $12,000. so the economics are straight forward. if we move to everybody off the company plan and moved to the exchanges, we would save $1 million a year, extrapolate that to a thousand employees -- >> greta: but the problem with it is that, even if you would like to keep them publicly owned company, even if you would like to keep them and on and pay that, if you are publicly honed, you have a fiduciary duty not to squander the mon i, that's a problem. >> have you one or two rough quarter, advertising and marking are the first to be cut. now it will be health care, going forward. mckenzie does did a study that estimated that 30% of companies, when asked, were considering moving people backs to the exchanges. so there is 150 million americans that receive health care from their employer. imagine 50 million people dumped on the exchanges. >> greta: let me get this -- let me ask you. 19% next
is it the responsibility of the federal government to hire teacher a local school board? your schools are your responsibility in your community and state. there is nothing in the federal constitution that said the federal government ought to hire teachers for you. if you think you need more teachers hire them in your local level and let your school board decide who they are and what they teach. it was not just what the cand date said that made the difference body language that spoke volumes. you can see the difference. mitt romney spoke to the president and looked at him. unfortunately, the president never looked back and as you can see through most of the debate people who watched it were stun tod see the president seemingly unable and unwilling tine look at his opponent mitt romney. he looked down and around. i think he was looking for the exit. i am pretty sure that is what he was looking at and is there a trap door somewhere down there? he could have used it and anyway quite a moment. romney set the debate high. can he stay on top in the next phase off. joining me is former communication's

on to fox news .com. >> the u.s. government has been aggressively looking into precisely what happened since september 11th when the attack occurred on benghazi or the consulate in benghazi so we have not been sitting around waiting for information to come to us. we have been actively chasing leads in various ways. >> i believe obviously what happened there was a tragic failure. there had been warnings of a possible attack. there were requests on the part of our commission there of our diplomats there tree have additional security forces. they were turned down. and then following the tragedy, we saw, well, misleading information coming from the administration and in fact the president didn't acknowledge that this was a terrorist act for, what, a week or two? i mean this was a terrorist attack. lives were lost. this happened on 9/11. candor andan dorland and transparently from the president and the administration and we didn't get it. >> geraldo: with congress in recess, the first debate focused on the economy, the question of whether the obama administration intentionally misled the american
want as much money as we can get and we'll doll -- dole it out as we see fit there are some government programs that work but most don't. education for example can't be improved from washington. it has to be done from your hometown. you guys have to do it by forcing local school administrators to impose discipline and actually teach the children subjects that matter. when americans vote in november, they will be voting for one of two things. the free marketplace, capitalistic approach espoused by mitt romney or the social justice spread the money around approach championed by the president. america is a changing country, that's why n bad economy president obama is hanging tough. and that's the memo. now for the tore story tonight. preparing for the big debate. president obama training in nevada. you may have heard my opponent and i are going to have a debate i'm looking forward to it? >> we are too. >> the media is speculating who is going to have the best zingers, governor romney is a good debater. i'm just okay mitt romney already in denver prepping for wednesday's big event. with us

,000 jobs were created last month, and megyn, only 10,000 of those jobs were government. megyn: we have been showing the chart of job creation over the past year or so. back in january, you can see it. look where we were back in january and february. then it falls way down. 45,000 jobs in the month of june. now that 114,000. not great to most economists, but not so great. how do we get to the point where we are at these not so great numbers, but the unemployment rate falls from 8.1% write-down in to 7.8%. :lou: let me smooth out the charge. we have a little below average what we did in 2012. there has been a decline and not an improvement according to the labor department. the survey employers, both government and business, to come up with that number. they have another survey, which is called a household survey. 50,000 folks are called and ask if they have a job or not. megyn: arctic cold calling them? >> they are cold calling them, randomly calling them. the establishment survey, that is almost 150,000. a much more sophisticated and scientific and less volatile survey. megyn: is this 7.8%
the first one work out? he wants to hire more government workers? he wants to pick with winners and losers solyndra, losers in his case. we know where that leads. we have seen the last four years. we don't want four more years like the last four years. >> reporter: the debate at the university on long island is going to include foreign policy. to that end the governor is rolling out the foreign policy ball. he has a big speech on foreign policy at virginia military institute in lexington. >> gregg: tell us how big the first debate is playing out in the campaign ads. >> reporter: both sides are trying to portray the other as the bigger fiber. he has new ad from both campaigns and both are saying the other is untruthful from taxes to anything under the sun. take a look. >> i don't have five trillion dollar tax cut. if you just implemented it would cut five trillion dollars. >> i will not produce the taxes paid by high income americans. >> is that actually true? >> the latest, not telling the truth about mitt romney's tax plan. the ap says doesn't add up. abc news, mostly fiction. >> it won't
rate dropped to the lowest since president obama took office. the government said 114,000 jobs answered. in a us whohold survey, 873,000 more americans reported having jobs. senator ayotte, isn't the economy getting better? >> i think what is disappointing about the report is that the downtick we saw in unemployment is because of part-time work for economic reasons so people who want full-time jobs taking lower pay. you can't support a family on part-time work. and, of course, we still have the sad fact we have the leaflet labor participation rate since 1981. if the number of people working or participating in the workforce were the same as when the president game into office the unemployment rate would really be 11%. i don't think there is cause to deliberate here. if you told the -- to celebrate here. if you told the american people it would be 7% i don't think anybody would be satisfied or happy with w. that. >> we want to return to full employment but what we have seen now is 31 months in a row consecutive months in a row of private sector job gains. so, it is far better to be gaini
and his principles. i thought the answer on the government, re-- referring back to the constitution, veryesquive. obama seemed nervous, ill at ease and off his game and because of the fact that romney was always looking at obama when obama was talking to him, much better than when obama was talking and looking down, like he was being lectured. i think we have to talk about the debate and the debate rules and the moderator. you know, the idea -- they were very excited, the debate commissioned about the 15-minute pods to allow more exchange. but it allowed more, longer speeches and talking points. jim lehrer, a man for whom i have tremendous esteem, seemed to lose control of the debate, occasionally. he seemed to throw something out there to keep the conversation going, sometimes it seemed to be helping obama, like saying, you are for a balanced approach of tax cuts and spending -- tax increases and spending cuts, and that really seemed to lose some control. as far as the issues were concerned, there were a couple of -- i can't say whoppers, but there were a couple of points. one was
